First Year Experience Program (FYE)

The FYE Program was designed especially for YOU- the first time college student- to assist in your transition from high school to campus life at Clovis 社区 College. Starting college can be both stressful and exciting, but as part of the Clovis CRUSH family, 你有支持. The FYE program will assist and support you during your first semester and beyond.

Students will enroll in INTDS 50 (College Success), which is a three-unit class.  The class is taught by a CCC faculty member with additional support from counselors and student success coaches.
